314 "What's That Game Again?" Jul 26 2014 Paws, Quinsisdos, Sabin1001
Natural doctrines come along so infrequently that you'd think we'd notice when one was cresting over the horizon. The record keepers come, gathering magic in 2015 like an unexpected inquisition in the age of ten quests for dragons. Nevertheless, the Inazuma Eleven will go forth and seed unrest among the various personas. Their destinies written in trails across the sky. Discuss

Jon, Alex, Anna, and Chris spend a quiet Saturday away from speed runs and soccer balls to bring you the latest in RPG happenings around the world.

Beastly projects, free rule books, and cursed kings keep us entertained during the pre-3 info drought. Wait, why is Nintendo releasing a Gamecube controller adapter for the Wii U? And why isn't Natsume publishing this farming game? What is going on? Discuss

"Do you want to build a Persona clone? Come on let's go license Unity. We never make JRPGs anymore. Stop building FPS games. It's like you're at EA. We used to build great epics. And now we don't. I wish you would tell me why! Do you want to build a Persona clone? It doesn't have to be a Persona clone." "I don't like dating sims, Anna." "Ok, bye." Discuss

301 "Mare Mayor" Apr 5 2014 Paws, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
Equines, epochs, set-top boxes, and hacking toddlers round out a really weird week. And as if April Fool's wasn't enough, Amazon announced a video game console. Well, not really, but really. It has a controller and everything. Except games, of course. Discuss

299 "I Want To Buy A Horse" Mar 22 2014 Paws, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
RPGamer puts this episode out to pasture, along with Marc Whitten and Koji Igarashji. In the meantime, you can go play Star Trek Online on OSX and pick up the latest DLC for Blackguards. Ok, so maybe there wasn't much interesting news this week. Discuss

Some things are better late than never. Adriaan, Glenn, Alex, Sam, and Chris talk Games of the Year. At least, that's the idea, but I think we get derailed into "How to save Nintendo" talk at some point. Discuss

It's a special edition of the RPGCast this week. Jon, Alex, Anna Marie, and Chris appreciate loot, bank Pokémon, link between and transfer worlds in a Sunday episode of the show. Ok, so it isn't really special so much as late. Discuss
280 "RPGamerOS" Sep 28 2013 Firemyst, Paws, Quinsisdos, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
Mikel and Chris narrow down the important parts of RPGamer's newest Linux distribution. Obviously, Steam will be bundled in. Getting the GUI to launch will require passing a test (including picking the correct text editor between vim and emacs). Also, pay no attention to the bundled bitcoin miner clients. Those are just a necessary part of the graphics drivers. The more CPU they use, the better games will play. Discuss

274 "Ron Perlman's Great Cast" Aug 10 2013 Paws, Quinsisdos, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001, Severinmira
Podcasting. Podcasting never changes. Kind of like Nintendo's 3rd party support. Or perhaps the game market for OSX. Also, let's be real, Pokémon may have Mega Evolutions now, but those games never change either. Discuss
273 "Get Off The Mixer" Aug 3 2013 Paws, Quinsisdos, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001

Between artwork controversies and some backwash from a riptide, we find a way to bring you the biggest news of the week. You won't believe Nintendo's E3 strategy. You'll boggle at what MMORPG still exists. And you'll be completely flummoxed by what a pun about rocks can get you. Discuss

258 "Kicked Into The Drop" Mar 2 2013 Paws, Quinsisdos, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001

237 "PLC" Sep 8 2012 Firemyst, Paws, Quinsisdos, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
Get lots of PAX-loadable content in this week's FREE content update. Please note, many RPG Cast opinions are available as both a multipack and as a single track mind.

236 "They Goin Ham" Aug 25 2012 Paws, Quinsisdos, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
RPGamer picks its fall fashion lineup. Square Enix picks its worst mobile pricing ever. A fan on Neogaf, however, shows that FROM Software's graphics department has been sitting around picking its collective nose. Discuss

Listen to the Extra Life 2010 edition of RPGCast and you get to hear Chris's epic battle against Dr. Eggman. But if you just want the news, we've got that too. How do signature editions, Tenacious D, FFXIV, and Pirates of the Carribean sound? Discuss
148 "3D Chocobo Breeding" Oct 9 2010 Kiro, Quin, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
RPGCast really gets into the thick of it this week. We debate the merits of a FFVII remake, the merits of physical vs. virtual, and the merits of turning into a sheep to fight enemies. Also we've only one week left until Extra Life, get those donations in! Discuss

141 "Suffer Well" Aug 14 2010 Firemyst, JCServant, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
We've got another week of RPGCast awesomeness for you all to take to your mommas. Nothing makes sense when Square Enix makes social RPGs, Pokémon in musicals, and Odo and Wayne Newton star in a Fallout game. Beware the Zabrak! Discuss

135 "Hentai Grab Bag!" Jul 3 2010 Firemyst, Paws, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001
It sounds like Manny didn't exactly fit into Anime Expo. It sounds like Mikel and Chris didn't really jive with Puzzle Quest. It also sounds like Canada is attempting to invade the RPGCast again. But don't worry, at least Nintendo is sending out free figurines. Discuss

119 "Lost In Fantasy" Mar 13 2010 Firemyst, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001

117 "Finny The Fishcast" Feb 27 2010 Firemyst, JCServant, Risingsuntzu, Paws, Sabin1001
Puffy, Finny, and Prinny all get into the cast this week. Perhaps they all wanted to celebrate the upcoming Level 5 US branch, or perhaps they just want a Nanaimo bar. Discuss

104 "RPGCast: Origins" Nov 7, 2009 Firemyst, JCServant, Risingsuntzu, Sabin1001, Unpetitmax

Gamescom and Blizzcon mean a ton of news for you. We've also got several people bargaining for Anna's time. And of course no week would be complete without a Fallout 3 story. Discuss
96 "Pokémon Karaoke Hour" Aug 8, 2009 Firemyst, Risingsuntzu, Paws, Sabin1001

95 "Getting Too Old for This Shtick" Aug 1, 2009 Firemyst, Risingsuntzu, Tom Goldman, Sabin1001, SeventhCircle

83 "Incestuous RPG Elements" May 9, 2009 Firemyst, Kiro, Paws, Sabin1001
We've got word of the new Nippon Ichi-Gust crossover game. Bioware also surprises nobody and announces troopers for its Star Wars MMO. And speaking of unsurprising, Bethesda releases another Fallout 3 add-on that doesn't work right. Discuss
82 "The Moogle Flu" May 2, 2009 Firemyst, Kiro, Paws, Sabin1001
